New Vancouver Concierge App Will Get You Anything You Want, Literally

Goods or Services, Volo Allows You to Make on Demand Requests at Your Fingertips; A Simple Way to Get Things Done

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - September 01, 2015) - Getting VIP treatment like having your own personal concierge or virtual assistant will soon be within grasp of Vancouverites everywhere and all without the cost that typically goes with it.

Vancouver based Volo Technologies is taking aim at making Canadian’s lives a little more simple and streamlined via their new app, Volo Concierge. Their mission is to combine all your daily goods or service needs into one easy to use app. Volo will get you whatever you need on demand with no hassle. Meaning no need for multiple on-demand service apps, wasting time on the phone, researching or googling reviews; they’ll take care of all the leg work for you.

Derek Wile, who founded the company in April of this year recently left his job in the corporate world to pursue his passion for entrepreneurship. After hearing of similar successful services in the U.S., Derek wondered why services like this weren’t available in more Canadian cities. “Vancouver deserves to have more of these amazing on-demand services which are typically only seen in San Francisco and the United States. More and more people are looking for fast and convenient ways to get things done, no matter what city you’re in. So we need to start somewhere,” adds Derek

The best part of Volo, it’s free to join and chat with their agents. Volo only charges when there is an upfront cost for a request which the user pays the total cost of the goods or service as well as a small fee which goes to Volo.

The new app, which launches their beta version early this September, will allow users to request whatever, wherever, whenever. As long as it’s legal of course. Food delivery, groceries, restaurant reservations, appointments, travel bookings, dry cleaning service and flower delivery are among a few of the services that Vancouverites have already shown interest in. “We have the best job in the world. We get to help people solve everyday problems, saving them time and making their already extremely busy lives just a tad less chaotic. It’s truly a simple way to get things done,” says Derek.

Here’s how the app works. With Volo’s quick sign up process and easy-to-use interface, you can have Volo agents processing your requests within minutes. Volo agents will then find the best possible solution for your request and will arrange the appropriate service provider to fulfill that request for you. Volo has agents standing by 24/7 so you can continue to make quick, on the fly, requests at your leisure.

Volo is currently planning a giveaway for their first registered users, who will be entered into a draw with a Grand Prize Package of 4 tickets to a Vancouver Whitecaps game and a $20 Volo gift card, as well as many other $5 & $10 Volo gift cards prizes which will be given away to lucky winners. You can sign up at TryVolo.com to be one of the first to try the Volo Concierge App.
